The idea is to felicitate those teachers who have enhanced student learning by effectively and innovatively integrating technology-supported learning into the school curriculum and subject teaching.”
He said teachers played very important role in shaping career of the students and if the best was inculcated in their mind, they would certainly become finer human beings.”
Nahar Singh, principal of Government Model Senior Secondary School, Model Town, said: “I have been contributing to the field of education for the last 29 years and this is for the first time that my name has been recommended by the education department. As a principal I am serving this school for the last five years and making efforts so that teachers bring out best results.”
The awards will be presented on Teachers' Day i.e. on September 5. Last year also, the education department had sent names of six teachers for state award but nobody from Ludhiana was able to get the award.
